Acquiring Vacant Land Video

Soil Generation partner Alicia Dorsey put together a video on how to acquire vacant land in Philadelphia.

The video stems from our series of Vacant Land 215 events, organized by the Soil Generation coalition. These events have taken place across Philadelphia, addressing topics such as:

  • The Philadelphia Land Bank, Sidelots, Sheriff’s Sales, Conservatorship, Adverse Posession and other mechanisms for preservation
  • Starting a non-profit, community organizing and building alliances
  • Starting a community garden
  • Addressing tangled titles
  • Navigating the zoning process
  • Storm water management
  • and much more
